I am a postdoctoral researcher at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC) and Northwestern University, where I am hosted by Avrim Blum, Jason Hartline, and Samir Khuller. My research area is Theoretical Computer Science and my main research focus is Algorithmic Game Theory and Mechanism Design.
Prior to joining TTIC and Northwestern, I finished my PhD in Computer Science at Cornell University, where I was advised by Eva Tardos. During my PhD studies, I was a long-term visitor at the Simons Institute for theory of computing, in Fall 2015 for a semester on Economics and Computation, an intern at Google during summer 2017, and an Ivy-Plus Exchange Scholar at Princeton University hosted by Matt Weinberg, 2017-2019. Prior to that, I received my BS degree in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology.
